Kirk Herbstreit's prediction of Clemson-FSU

ESPN television commentator Kirk Herbstreit occasionally takes college football questions from members of the Twitter community.

On Saturday morning, a Twitter user asked him who is his pick for the winner of the upcoming annual ACC Atlantic showdown between Clemson and Florida State.

Herbstreit tweeted, "Clemson because of the QB."

Each of the last seven years the winner of the Clemson vs. Florida State game has gone on to win the Atlantic Division. Each of the last five years the winner of this game has also won the ACC Championship.

In 2015, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson had 404 total yards as #1 Clemson defeated #16 Florida State 23-13 in Death Valley.

He was also asked if Clemson would get another shot at a national title in 2016.

"As long as #4 is back absolutely!!!," Herbstreit tweeted. "Offense will be as good as there is in CFB in '16!"
